New York Jets’ History By the Numbers: #97


Let’s continue our new series on Jets’ history, looking back by the numbers. If you missed the first entry, we are taking significant jersey numbers from Jets’ history, listing all players to wear it, highlighting the most significant players in team history to wear it, and then putting it to a vote.

Today we are moving back in Jets’ history to look at #97. Here are the players to wear the number:
Don Baldwin
Marvin Washington
Dorian Boose
Giradie Mercer
Trevor Johnson
Kareem Brown
Calvin Pace

Here are the players we are going to highlight:

MARVIN WASHINGTON: Some of the younger readers might not remember Marvin Washington, but he was a good player in his time with the Jets. Drafted by the Jets in 1989, Marvin was a good pass rusher off the edge, posting 37.5 sacks during his time with the Jets. You might say that those aren’t great, and they aren’t, but they stuck out on a team that had trouble rushing the passer. His best year with the Jets was 1992, with 8.5 sacks.

CALVIN PACE: We all know this guy. He came on the scene in 2008 and gave the Jets 15 sacks over his first two seasons. After a dip in production, and a release and resign, Calvin gave us his best year in 2013, posting ten sacks.

So, who is the best #97? Vote below:
